Now, let me be honest here & say the piece I’ve used on my card today has been on my desk for sometime & I’ve just been moving it from spot to spot.  At one stage it ended up in the bin before being rescued.  You can imagine me doing a happy dance when I saw this card lol as the piece was just perfect for today’s card.

I am really happy with the layout of this one as it sort of come together of it’s own free will.  Does that often happen to you.

Stampin’ Up! | Soft Pastels | Easy Technique

G’Day Friends,

We’re playing with the Soft Pastels this month & sharing different ways of using these little beauties.  If you haven’t seen them, they on Page 125 of the 2023-2024 Annual Catalogue.

The colours I’ve used from the pack are Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight & Poppy Parade.  Don’t you think they look beach?  Mind you, it didn’t start out that way.

The Artistically Inked Stamp Set & Artistic Dies have been teamed up with the Soft Pastels which give a real coastal look to the card.  The Cardstock is Basic White, Night of Navy & Grey Granite while the inks used are Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party, Lemon Lolly & Night of Navy for the sentiment.

Why not have a play with your Soft Pastels & see what you can come up with.  They are so much fun!
